Pybar has begun mobilising to A1 Consolidated Gold’s A1 gold mine in Victoria.

Work is slated to start next week.

“We are pleased that mobilisation of labour and mining equipment to site has commenced so quickly and look forward to forging a strong working relationship with Pybar,” A1 Consolidated managing director Dennis Clark said.

“The mining works are scheduled to commence next week, with ore production from the 1400 Stockworks expected in March.

“As indicated by the scoping study, bringing the A1 mine into full time gold production will be a major milestone for our company.”

A value was not given on the contract win.

Pybar will provide labour and management personnel, as well as required plant and equipment, which will be integrated into A1’s workforce to commence 24/7 mining operations during decline development.

Once production begins Pybar will continue operations at the site for an initial period of two years, which may be extended by “mutual consent”.
